Beacy All- Stars come up just short

Yesterday the Boys All Stars team competed in the state finals at Dandenong Basketball Stadium. The boys started fantastically by winning their first four games and finishing on top of their pool. Unfortunately, the boys lost their quarter finals by 5 points meaning that they were eliminated and just short of playing off before an NBL game in two weeks time.

The boys tried their best and I could not have been prouder. Out of the 400 Boys All Star teams that entered this competition, to come in the top 8 is a significant achievement.

Thankyou boys for all the fun times and amazing memories!


Homework Task

One of the easiest things you can do to give back to your community is showing kindness. This week you are encouraged to show kindness in different ways at home, at school and in the wider community. This could be as simple as saying hello, holding a door open or doing something without being asked to. Create a bookmark of all of the acts of kindness you did, which can be put on show to help others realise what they can do to be kind.

Homework Task

For homework this week, you are going to volunteer to help people in your own community. Some suggestions of what you could do are:

• Complete a chore you would not normally have to do (mow the lawn, do the dishes, take out the garbage, vacuum the house etc.)
• Help your sibling with their homework
• Make a meal for your family
• Have a conversation with a grandparent, aunt, uncle or someone older than you, that you haven’t seen for a while
• Volunteer to help a teacher with something at school
• Donate some old toys or clothes

Record what you did and who you helped in your homework book. Describe how you felt after you had completed each task. You must complete at least 3.

Grade 5 Kickstart

Could all grade 5 students please be at Berwick College tomorrow at 8.45am for a 9.00am start. We will be meeting at the Leisure centre, which is the near the big roundabout.

We will be walking back to school and should arrive back at around 11.30am.

See you there!

The community of Beaconsfield has some great organisations who rely on the assistance of volunteers.
